Grumpy Website


Okay, hear me out. The thing I’ll describe might sounds like science fiction, something beyond our wildest dreams. Yet the only thing computers can’t take away from us is our dreams.

So. What if every time I configure my display arrangement, it will be stored somewhere on a hard drive? In a file, for example.

Now comes the crazy part. What if next time Mac sees the same exact displays connected (by hardware id, or at least by NAMES. I can see in window title it knows their NAMES), it opens this file and restores the layout exactly as I configured it last time?

Sounds unreal, I know. Yet 20 years ago we didn’t have Google. There was no Twitter 15 years ago. Maybe in next 15-20 years we’ll see a much more advanced OS of the future that will be capable of remembering monitor configuration. Maybe. I sure hope so.
